Essential oil bottles holders – tree alike….54cm high, 30×20x4cm base, branches 20, 30, 35, 35 cm length. 30mm holes, some 1/3 branch thicknes deep. I made holes on drillpress….somehow…not perfect,but, should be unperfect, natural more…
Branches were glued in 40mm diameter holes, 4-5 cm deep. I adjusted branches on disc sander to accomodate those holes. Main tree was glued and screwed to base plate.
Finish walnut stain and non glossy laquer.

Neat idea maj... bet they’ll sell more trees than oils… should have made it closer to Christmas.

Hell, I thought oil came from the ground… had no idea it grew on trees… bloody science!
